We provide a variety of interpreting services between Arabic and English. These include consecutive and summary modes of interpreting for the following Arabic dialects: Modern Standard, Egyptian and Levantine. Talk to us about your needs and we will do our best to serve you.

Consecutive interpreting provides a complete rendering of what is said after a short pause. Each participant allows the interpreter time to render his or her speech in the target language before continuing or responding. The interpreter may also provide cultural information to both the client and his or her audience to facilitate communication. This mode of interpreting is appropriate for interviews and small meetings.

It is often requested for:

*medical appointments
*social services hearings and interviews
*education-related meetings
*business meetings
*depositions and legal consultations
*court hearings or trials
*telephonic interviews
*training seminars and workshops

Summary interpreting provides a gist of what is being said after a slight pause. The interpreter renders the main points in the target language but does not attempt to convey every nuance. As with consecutive interpreting, the interpreter may also provide cultural information to the client and his audience to facilitate communication. This mode of interpreting is appropriate for less formal settings where a client needs to process large quantities of oral information quickly.

Summary interpreting is often requested for:

*escort travel
*conferences
*administrative appointments

Limited-English proficiency speakers may have a legal right to interpreting services. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Executive Order 13166, "Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency," signed on August 11, 2000, requires all recipients of federal financial assistance such as Medicare or Medicaid as well as government offices for social services to provide meaningful access to Limited-English Proficiency clients. If Limited English Proficiency clients are unable to communicate fully with their service providers, that service provider should make interpreting service available.
